SMART-E After School Care is open from the end of the school day until 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. Parents may pick up children from the program at any time.  Children must be signed out of the program by an approved adult. At the middle schools, parents may choose to give permission for their children sign themselves out at a specific time to walk home.
